580 but the good news is it is not blocking any lanes, on the right shoulder involving a big rig. we see traffic building and it has been busy coming away from the 205 580 connector. traffic is pretty slow-and-go on the 205 580 area. it gets much better heading toward the 680-580 goblin interchange. at the san mateo bridge traffic is light with no wind advisory in effect and an easy ride as far as the drive time goes, 60 minutes westbound from 880 toward the 101. speaking of 880, here's a live look over 880, free-flowing with no delays. if you're traveling from the colosseum to the bay bridge, and looks pretty good. to the south we see traffic bunching up a little bit. we have the paseo proned day

most of the seats were filled with a few empty spots but ticket sales were underwhelming leading up to the game. the fan base is 2500 miles away in south carolina and alabama. one fan from nashville that decided to make the trip a few hours before the game when he saw the lower level front level seats were only $800, one third of what they would generally go for. >> the prices were dropping on the ticket so i thought why not make the trip. >> reporter: was it a last- minute decision? >> definitely. i decided to make it a day, and i jumped on a plane and came out. >> reporter: they say they expect to take a hit of $8 million-$12 million and looking at the financial loss as the overall win due to the value it brings to the park and it will help to attract more high profile events to the stadium.
the organizing committee for the game will hold the debriefing conference at 10 am today. the partial government shutdown is in the 18th day, the second longest in history. president trump is demanding the border wall throughout the shutdown and as we take a live look at the white house, president trump will deliver the first primetime oval office address to the american people. >> it is an absolute crisis with criminals and gang members coming through. it is national security and the national emergency. >> tonight the president will make his case for the border wall and says he will visit the border on thursday. some call the televised address a publicity stunt. >> i expect the president to lie to the american people because he has been lying to the american people and will continue to lie to the american people. >> we willhave live coverage right here on kpix 5.
governor gavin newsom wasted no time when it comes to criticizing president trump in the inaugural speech. >> will offer an alternative to the corruption and incompetence in the white house. >> the governor also spoke about the state standing up against the trump administration policy including the immigration and environment. only hours into the job governor newsom announced the ambitious healthcare for undocumented immigrants, a california for all. he wants to use the medi-cal money to cover the undocumented young adults. as it is now, after the age of 19 undocumented immigrants can no longer get medi-cal and that new proposal would expand the age limit up to 26. rglary charged with killing the busy
berkeley graduate that was with these young dollars last summer and the 42-year-old anthony rauda fired the shots in june. he is also facing 10 counts of attempted murder in a series of incidents dating back to 2016. the 35-year-old tristan beaudet was found dead in a tent with this two-year-old and four-year- old daughters and they were not hurt. his family was planning to move to the bay area. the investigation into the murder revealed other shootings and all are at or near that same part of the last two years. prosecutors say that anthony rauda wanted a man sleeping in a hammock in the park area and less than one week later he is accused of firing into vehicle. anthony rauda was sentenced to six months for ammunition and guns violations. the suspect was planning a mass shooting at two napa
schools and the napa investigators said the suspect was a river middle school student and looked at attacking his own school and the vintage high school. the police learned about the intentions from a fellow student and found the evidence at two homes and the investigation is ongoing with several students being interviewed. it is the funeral for jasmine barns, and she was in a car with her mom and three sisters and houston on december 30 when someone opened fire on the car shooting her in the head. they have charged the 20-year- old with capital murder and a second suspect is in jail on drug charges. they believe it was most likely a case of mistaken identity. we have new video out of beijing, china, were 20 children were attacked by a man with a hammer. the man apparently worked there as a janitor and was disgruntled that his contract was not being renewed.
he went added in a classroom full of kids. the 20 students were injured, three seriously, but all are expected to live. the parents picking up their kids are concerned they did not get enough information on the bizarre hammer attack. >> that was a very bizarre and scary situation. there was a fire on the oil tanker in route to hong kong leaving at least one dead. the vessel was transporting kerosene. the crew jumped into the water with the plans engulfing the ship. they rescued 21 crewmembers and the nearby residents said they heard a loud bang that shook the windows, and it is unclear what started the fire. the north korea leader kim jong-un has arrived at the invitation of the south korean president amid the ongoing trade war between the u.s. and china. some believe that kim is sending a message to president
trump that there are diplomatic alternatives for south korea and china. something you don't see every day, coming up, the moves ends up inside the hospital lobby but the trick is to get him out, caught on camera. in the meantime stick around for the weather. it is heading our way and it will be a soggy evening. i will tell you about your morning and evening commute. we have a hot spot on 880 and we will take a look at the travel times.
the question isn't whether he should be impeached any more. he's the most corrupt president in american history. and we all know it. the question now is, how fast can we move past this president so we can build a more just and prosperous future? please, join the more than 6.5 million americans who are demanding action now. because there's nothing more powerful than the unified voice of the american people. together, we will make this happen. need to impeach is responsible for the content of this ad.
welcome back. it is 5:13 am. in your morning health watch, the flu season is picking up and according to the cdc a number of states reporting high flu activity, and the hospitalization rates went up for the children four years old and younger. the death rate remains comparatively low but experts warned that could soon change. the new research in the british medical journal saying that one out of four women were not allowed to control their reproductive life with many young and minority women
reported not being allowed to choose contraceptives or to start or continue their pregnancy. the british study found people that compare themselves to other facebook users are more likely to notice physical health issues including sleep problems, weight issues and muscle tension. there is new video of the moose walking into the hospital in alaska, of course. you can see the large animal standing in the lobby. he wandered into the building through the motion activated doors and stuck around to munch on the plants. the woman captured several minutes of his stay on camera before he callously walked out the way he came. hospital security make sure the doors were closed behind him and luckily no one was injured. those animals can do some damage. >> we hope that plant was tasty and not plastic.
>> it does not look like he left a mess, not a bad guest. 880 as we take a live look at the caltrans cameras, extra volume on the southbound side. we are watching the northside is well with reports of a big rig that may have caught on fire. they reported seeing smoke coming from the cab of the big rig. that is north 880 just past linton avenue but not blocking the main lines of 880. you can see the traffic is green and that is a decent speed as you take the nimitz freeway this morning. we have trouble spots on westbound 580 and that was a big rig accident but it has been cleared but the problem is it is 20 minutes until the tow truck large enough to clear the big rig will arrive.
that is causing a big delay with the busy areas of tracy, westbound and past north flynn road at this point. you should be fine at dublin interchange connecting uck unde cement truck at 580 but not locking lanes. along 680 we have a stalled big rig at highway 24, stuck in one lane. we check in with chp and it looks like they're waiting on the tow truck to arrive. that rig was carrying about 40,000 pounds of stuff which will take some time to clear out of the roadway. lurking at 580, the east shore freeway and one-on-one in the grain. skip the roadways and use the mass transit with everything on time for bar, caltrain and muni. here's a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza and we have a few more cars making the trek out of oakland into san
francisco. >> right now everything appears to be okay for your morning commute. as we take a look at the high death doppler we have showers, but not moving on shore very much moving from the north to the south. you could see a few scattered showers this morning in the santa cruz mountains and you could see a few sprinkles on the windshield. this morning as mostly cloudy as you can see looking toward the east, concord at 51 along with livermore and santa rosa with santa rosa at 53. this low pressure system is pretty strong and mostly everything is swirling around it meeting it is moving from the south to the north. this low pressure system will sliding in into the afternoon and evening with that frontal boundary making landfall leaving us with wet weather and significant storms.
this leaves behind a few, two at least storms heading our way through the weekend for a soggy couple of days. we have clouds with scattered showers and especially in the north bay moving into the afternoon hours. it is the same thing before the evening when we see that front starting to move through, certainly soggy. 7:00 is when the vast majority of that will be dropping, showers overnight into tomorrow morning with a little bit of clearing. we have a brief break on thursday before the next round moves in on friday. we could see a quarter of an inch of two 2 inches in the north bay. it will be a wet and windy one with a wind advisory going into effect at 1:00 today and mostly in the bay area hills and the coast. we will all see some form of gusting weather so be careful driving home across the bridge.

alabama and clemson, it has to be the college football version of the warriors and the cleveland cavaliers. this is the fourth straight time they met at the college football playoffs and the third time for the national championships. there were 74,000 at the levi's stadium. it was 90 seconds into the game when alabama threw the ball picked up for the return of 44 yard touchdown. clemson striking early, 7-0. it is the clemson time answer with the 62 yards, 7-7 less than three minutes into the game. breaking the tackle and barreling into the end zone, a 17 yard score with clemson up, 14-7. that is freshman trevor lawrence shuffling the past for
the second of three touchdowns in the game, 28-16. it is now 31-16 in the third quarter with lawrence throwing it to ross, alabama racing for the score. lawrence throwing for the 374 yards and three touchdowns, 44- 16 to take the second national title in three years for clemson. finishing the season, 15-0. >> you watch the game and dream about playing in it, did it live up to your expectations or even better for you? >> it was surreal. it was even better. >> we had a great season, but great is not good enough. we did not finish the way we wanted to finish. >> it was lopsided. losing, me personally playing football, i that my entire
career would not be undefeated because that is unrealistic. all the work we put into see that so lopsided is the surprising part. >> our seniors going out 15-0, being the best ever all year long and we were never in the conversation all year long. tonight there is no doubt. >> in the meantime, down south eight miles from here the sharks look to build off the best win of the season against the lightning. the kings had fallen to the bottom of the western conference, and scoring the go- ahead goal and san jose winning, 3-2, winning 5 of the last 6 games. it is complete that clemson is the winter, and get used to trevor lawrence, the true freshman that has three more years. some experts call him the best true freshman quarterback in the history of college

maccarthur maze into san francisco. you may want to use mass transit. it will be busy and in the green on westbound for and the antioch bridge. at the east shore freeway, 880 southbound, 22 minutes, westbound 237 looking great from 880 two 80, 9 minute ride. traffic moving nicely over the golden gate bridge, everything clear through santa rosa and petaluma. if you're traveling into san francisco, give yourself 51 -- 15 minutes using one-on-one southbound. there were two losers at the college championship game and they are scrambling to make up for the poor ticket sales at the levi's stadium. >> we are in santa clara to explain.
>> reporter: leading up to the big game it was a question of whether it would be the judge with empty seats with ticket prices down 75% compared to the racing years. it looked like college football fans pounced on the tickets. the crews describe the stadium as frenetic with fans decked out from head to toe in the orange and purple. most of the seats were filled but in the days and weeks before the ticket sales were underwhelming, and in large part because the fan bases are 2500 miles away for south carolina and alabama. the ticket sales were one third of what they were last year and that was enough to get a few of the locals to jump in the car for the last minute trip. >> it gives us a chance because we never get a chance to go to the alabama-clemson to watch the big-time games. >> the tailgating and stuff is not is known as it is in the
south, so maybe this is the start of it all. it should be because it is fun. >> i think the fan bases love to be in the area like this, somewhere new. >> the 49ers are the hosting team and they say that expected take a loss of eight to $12 million. they are looking at the financial loss as an overall win due to the financial value that you bring to the park to attract the whole high profile events to the stadium. they will have a press conference at 10 am to go over the numbers. the burlingame police officer is out of a job for offering to help a woman that was charged with dui if she would agree to have sex with him. the bad behavior was brought to the like thanks of the new law and the senator nancy skinner bill gives access to the records of officers that have
